More to improve and fewer to disapprove.
More doers and fewer talkers.
More to say "it can be done" and fewer to
say "it's impossible".
More to inspire others and fewer to throw cold water
More to get into the thick of things and fewer to sit
on the sidelines.
More to point out what's right and fewer to show what's
More to light a candle and fewer to curse the darkness.

is a disaster to have no ideal to capture." –
